It's about time you showed up. I was starting to worry that you were in jail again.

I should have posted it, but when I was playing this sunday night, I actually thought "this is totally a game bert will appear out of nowhere early in the week with a 1 lc while the rest of us struggle with it til sunday." Only surprise is it doesnt appear he beat the game.

Makes me feel better because Im getting nowhere with it. Would help if the main character werent slower than molasses.

Since he finally showed up, maybe I should just beat the game. I am enjoying the two week vacation though.

Ah haaaa so you have already beat it! Nicely done. Its late in the season to renew the doug/bert rivalry, but Im all for it

I haven't played anymore since Sunday. He didn't even try to beat my Elevator Action score. I'm sure he's busy hoping I don't qualify for the tournament.

Okay, pretty much every single one of you is point scumming, because when I died on my first man at the start of Round 5, I only had 143K.  I guess I gotta stop following the rules by pushing forward hard and just sort of leisurely make my way through the game, facing twice as many enemies by happenstance...   😒

Seriously though, the ruleset for this game should have been progess plus lowest score as the tie-break.  If two or more people beat the game this week, the "winner" will be the one who sat back the longest to face the most enemies.  It actually takes far more skill to beat this game with a low score run.  Oh well, c'est la vie...😕

There are “secret” areas and ways to get more points without point pressing. I have played this game a lot over the years and I can beat it. I haven’t however made it past stage 2 without losing a life…..

So what do I know?🤷🏽‍♂️

Oh, well I haven't done any internet research on this game, all I know is that it's gotta be about the easiest game in human history to farm points on.  Why look for secret areas for points when you can literally stand just about anywhere in the game and tap B?

Because that’s cheating per the rule set.

That's my point!  But I will look into these secret areas you've mentioned and see what kind of point difference it makes.  I just feel like so many people are going to no-death the game this week that the "winner" with the most points will have used tactics that are, shall we say, questionable.

I no-deathed to the start of Round 5 on my third game, and then when I played it out, I found Round 6 and 7 to be an absolute joke compared to most of the preceding Rounds.  For me, the very start of Round 5 was the toughest part of the game, so once you get past that on one life, the sky's the limit...

Okay, I just checked gamefaqs, and there are indeed five bonus areas in the first four levels that have really cryptic entry points that I doubt anyone would just find on his own.  So I guess everyone but me researched up on this before they played and hit every single secret area in their path.  Yeah, that's it; carry on; my bad!.....  🙂

the winner might not even rack points on purpose. thats the worst part. a player who honestly cant get through a section as quickly will score more points. this was my complaint for gradius 2. and in gradius 2, weapon selection could render more points, between two equal players, due to ripple being less powerful than laser.

needs to be low score contest. otherwise inferior gameplay for tha win!

i dont mind playing broken games. there is alot of them. low score fixes it but that takes away the spirit of the game and arguably the fun. this another point for geral leader not being the true champ.

you cant stop legit accidental point racking. 

That happens in a ton of games we played through the years and years of the contest.
And so far, only Bert managed to beat the bloody game.
I could consider y'all case if many more of you did the same feat and the point discrepancy was too large to ignore.

i understand we have played many broken games. does no one care to fix the issue? if so than it is what it is. 

 btw its only wednesday 🙂 you know we dont post what we got until sunday.

      Ladies and gentlemen, we are BACK with the last round of games of our beloved VGS NES Weekly Contest!
      To decide who will wear the laurels and claim the fame of being the 2021 VGS NES Weekly Contest Sports champion, we have one epic game of brutal action, where basketball meets street brawling!
      ARE YOU READY FOR Nekketsu Street Basketball?
      The rules are below:
      Pick battle mode (2nd option in the game) Pick 1P mode Pick Nekketsu as your team (first team in the screen) Pick US Navy as your opponent (second team in the screen) Pick the VEGAS stage to play on (second stage to the left, with the slot machines icon) Take your picture at the end of the match. Highest score difference for the Nekketsu team wins Participation: Beat the second team
      @0xDEAFC0DEhas a very comfortable 4 points lead over @NESfiend, who is the only who can challenge him for the Sports title this year.
      For Nesfiend to win, he needs to win this week and hope @0xDEAFC0DE doesn't score over 6th place, since he will be tied on most wins, but loses on the 2nd tie breaker, most 2nd places.
      Will he be able to pull such a miracle to claim the crown? Time will tell!
      The contest ends Sunday, 09/26/21 at midnight Brasilia time. Your user name MUST be written or typed on a piece of paper and be in the picture for your score to be valid.  The entire TV screen, or computer monitor if you are playing on an emulator, MUST be in the picture for the score to be valid.  No partial screenshots will be considered or accepted.  No screenshots by hitting "print screen" on a computer will be allowed.  You must take a picture of your computer monitor.  There may be instances where this will be acceptable, but it will be at the discretion of myself and the contest organizers.  Also, the use of turbo controllers is forbidden, as well as any cheat codes, Game Genies, slow motion functions, or save states if playing on an emulator.  Also, we will only be using NTSC systems for the contests.  The use of PAL systems will NOT be allowed.  Good luck everyone and have fun
